Got a call from this number to 'verify' Go Daddy account. Go Daddy doesn't host my website. Complete and utter fraud.
GODADDY reminding me to renew my domain
Fishing scam - Do not give them your credit card over the phone or verify the text code, they can use this info to access your account. Most domain info like expiration date is public record. Even if you have private registration, your contact info can still be traced. Watch out, they almost got me.
THIS IS NOT GODADDY... it is a scam number (last two digits are different). They left me a message that I needed to renew a domain (I knew I had already paid it) so I called the real godaddy phone number from their website 480-505-8877
. Godaddy is aware of this but they can't stop it. They are so scammy good that they copied part of godaddy's incoming message which really makes you think it is really them...it's not. Apparently they are picking up your information from your domains that do not have private registration (you have to pay extra to keep your name/number hidden so many people don't buy it).
they hung up and soon as I aswered
I am on the no call list -- any correspondence from GoDaddy should be in writing or email, if indeed the number associated with who called me is actually from GoDaddy.

RE: 480-505-8859... Caller SAID she was "calling for GoDaddy-dot-com."
The voicemail said they "need to update my info" BUT "my info" was entirely fictitious... because I've never done business with GoDaddy.
I have my own dot-com, but all you get there is my Service Provider & they don't give out customer info without a search warrant.
This may or may not be GoDaddy-dot-com but it's a SCAM in any case. They are either fishing for SALES or they are phishing for your personal info so they can ROB you.
Likewise, the alleged "confirmation" and praise given to these scammers thru various sources including Twitter is likely posted by the scammers themselves, with a fake identity.

Try Phone Tray (dialup or hi-speed). It lets you automatically block unwanted calls. Yes, this one was GoDaddy. Costs only $16.

THIS IS A VALID PHONE NUMBER..
JUST SET UP AN ACCOUNT ON GO DADDY.COM
I BELIEVE CALLED JUST TO VERIFY
Buy more. Buy more. Buy more. Day after day the same sell. I don't answer anymore. Go daddy, go away.
This call is from GODADDY and they hang up as soon as I answer...... why? not sure..... we are registered with them and pay them monthly.... if you want to talk to me, DON'T HANG UP!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!
Trying to sell more services
Missed a call on my cell phone (my only phone) from this number. No message left. I just registered a domain name with GoDaddy, so the comments from others were helpful in determining who called. I wouldn't appreciate getting calls from them trying to sell me something.
no one on the line when they called. Multiple calls multiple days.
Been with them for a very long time. Best and most helpful bunch of people you ever want to deal with when you run a web site. Thanks a million !! It's easy to see why they are the Number 1 Registrar in Domain Names...

no answer when I picked up phone.
it's GoDaddy. i have a web page with them. its a personal webpage and the service is fine. seven bucks a month and 150GB of space. the problem is they call to try and sell me HUNDREDS of additional domain names! LOL!!! i only need one, what would i do with a hundred domain names. silly waste of energy on their part..... i hit the iggy button every time!
GoDaddy, called me after I purchased a domain, agreed to allow calls from them.
@B.R. Robot If you got a call from "a super-shady internet hosting site" it's not because it came from GoDaddy it's because you didn't have privacy on your domain name. ANY spamming or telemarketing company will have access to your contact information and they frequently harvest information from the Whois database because it's free and idiots like you don't know what you are doing. Don't blame the registrar if you are too stupid to realize that.....you whiny f*ggot.
GoDaddy. they always call to thank you for your purchases with GoDaddy and then try and upsale you on other things that they could offer you. Which is the reason I never talk to them anymore.
I didn't pick up. Their message thanked me for buying their product, which I have not done and am not willing to do. When I called back, they tried to score my contact info, which they would have had if I actually had a business relationship with them. I got to the point: told them not to call me again, and reported them to the FCC.
Just got a call from GoDaddy at this number. It was just a thank you call for my renewals, but the guy asked if I had any questions and was really helpful in addressing them. It was so laid back and friendly that after the call I thought, "wait a second, big companies don't handle customers like that, did I just get scammed?" So I googled the number to confirm it was legit and found this page. I guess it was legit after all.
It's a shame that we've been so conditioned to expect lousy customer service that a good experience like this raises immediate suspicion.
Didn't answer, they left a recorded message. I had recently made some renewals, so like serveal below it was somewhere between a legit tyvm and an up-sell.
Have called me twice in 2 days, does not leave voice mails....I have not called them back to see what they want. I figure no message explaining the call, not important.
Called me today - same thing as Mel's (see below on 2009-02-10).
Go Daddy offering to help set up products, etc...
Note relating to B.R. Robot's comments relating to the call he got from aplus.net: They got your information from the Whois database, which domain registrars have to submit to per ICANN. It's publicly accessible and spammers and telemarketers tend to data mine it. That is what happens when you don't register your domains privately. Might not hurt to check your facts before you start throwing around accusations.
GoDaddy welcome message. Just renewed a few domains.
JR from godaddy
msg said i opened a recent acct and pls call him back -- I don't think so (on either)!!!!
fake godaddy Apr 03rd, 2009
I just registered a domain with GoDaddy a couple days ago. the message was cut off by my voicemail, but it said something about 'our team'. so I'm guessing it was them
i got a call during dinner, guy said he is with go daddy, said do you have some time to go over things, i said, no i'm eating dinner email me. why would go daddy call during dinner, thats annoying and an intrusion, or overly aggresive sales, makes me question using them if the call was legit. they should just email if they have something to say. or warn that they will call you when they ask for your number. i did just register a domain through them, but i'm suspicious, will need to check on my account and status of my phone number, and perhaps contact go daddy and say don't call unless critical but not for sales.
It's a Go Daddy "welcome" call.
GoDaddy.com; left a recorded thank you message after I registered a domain name.
According to message left on answering machine this was GoDaddy calling to consult on my account. I do have a GoDaddy account and they have called before from the same area code so most likely legit. I just didn't answer the phone because I very rarely answer the phone.
Called to check on my account update and to see if everything was going as expected. I'd guess they were trying to sell more services. Don't know why they don't show their CallerID info.
GoDaddy called regarding a small order I had just made. Very polite and brief. No problems here.
Annoying that they called me - I didn't opt-in to being pestered during my dinner.
GoDaddy.com Jan 08th, 2008
Called to wish me a happy new year.... and that I have some domains expiring soon.
DomainDaddyO Jan 03rd, 2008
It is Christmas Eve. These idiots from GoDaddy.com called my house five times today from this number for a SALES CALL. This is absurd and unacceptable.
2:14pm, 12/7 - comes up "Out of area." Message said, "Hi Scott - this is Kevin, from GoDaddy.com" - and that was all. No one named "Scott" lives here! Weird...
just signed with godaddy, they called to help me get setup. needed no assistance but it was the best cs ive seen from a tech company.
note to the previous post: That company didn't get you info from GoDaddy, when you register a domain, no matter from who, your name, address, phone number, and email address are put in the public whois database unless you do the domain as a private registration. You should be more educated on a subject before you slam someone on it.

I got a call the day at 8pm on a saturday from GoDaddy trying to sign me up for more money after i registered a domain through them.
I'm not exactly thrilled by this.
P.S. Two days later(today) i get a call from aplus.net, a super-shady internet hosting site that farmed my phone number from godaddy, who either sold it to them or allowed them to harvest it as soon as it was availble to them in my account. Thanks go daddy, you suck. oh, and aplus.net? I'm on the donotcall list, which makes you telemarketing spam a crime.
I recommend you all change your godaddy account phone number to something private.
B. R. Robot Mar 27th, 2007
I received a call from this number but no one left a voice mail. I decided to do a search and it led me here.

GoDaddy called to follow up on my new account. they even refunded the things I didn't need. wow!
I went to GoDaddy.com to get on a waiting list for a domain list. They called to follow up to make sure I didn't have any problems (veiled sales call).
I love GoDaddy they called just to say thank you. What class!
